What are Garage Doors made of?

Q: What are garage doors made of?
A: There are four main kinds of materials that are most commonly used to make garage doors. They are:

1. Wood

Wood is a great natural material to use for your garage door. It's widely used to create custom doors in various designs. However, because the door is made from wood it can require more maintenance and care compared to other types of garage door materials.

2. Aluminum

Most of your standard, basic garage doors are made from aluminum. They're very rust resistant, but are not always available in a wide range of colors or insulation options. Yet, they can be customized - such as replacing some of the solid panels in the door with frosted glass panels for a more modern look.

3. Composite / Faux Wood

Doors made from these types of materials provide the look and appearance of wood, yet without the added maintenance. The faux wood doors do offer insulation and customization options. You may also stain and paint them too. Additionally, they will not rot, crack, split, or shrink - plus, they're resistant to moisture.

4. Steel

Steel garage doors offer the most variety of colors, styles, and designs, which are able to be customized to your tastes. You can also find insulated doors, which range from standard insulation to premium, multi-layered insulated doors.
